On the Macintosh: Individual game controller software
In Windows 98, you can configure and test joysticks using the Game Controllers control panel. Joysticks, foot pedals, and other customized game controllers are less common in the Macintosh world, so there’s no standard control panel in the Macintosh OS for configuring them. Instead, each device comes with its own custom software.
On the Macintosh: GIF
GIF, which stands for Graphics Interchange Format, is a standard bitmapped graphic file format. (Its most notable features: small size, a maximum of 256 colors per file—making it inappropriate for photos, but great for logos and cartoons—and widespread use on the Web.) Luckily, GIF files are completely cross-platform, so you can transfer GIF files back and forth between PCs and Macintoshes with no trouble at all. Although it’s common for GIF files to have a .gif extension even on Macintoshes, it’s not required.
